Making Discoveries....Evergreen Tree Brads

I am feeling pretty fortunate tonight. As I was leafing through a pile of Christmas patterned paper, I came across this paper with evergreen trees. Earlier today I had created a card for the "Evergreen Trees" challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges. I knew that this patterned paper would make an excellent background for another card. As I was poking around looking for embellishments to use with the patterned paper, I discovered some evergreen tree brads. How lucky can I be! Don't you just love it when you find the perfect supplies right at your fingertips! The card came together very quickly once I'd located all the goodies. I began by adhering the patterned paper to a white mat, then layered it on top of a green cardbase. I threaded a piece of green cardstock through the tree brads and attached them to an inked background. I layered this onto a piece of white cardstock with faux stitching. I love how quickly it came together and I am thrilled that I discovered the paper and embellishments. Now I'm heading back into my studio to see what other forgotten goodies await me.

I'm also linking this card up for the "Anything Goes" as long as it's Christmas challenge over at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge.

  2. So glad you made two cards for CCC#37! I too love comming across forgotten goodies. Glad you found those brads, which I thought were ribbon buckles, beacuse they are perfect with the paper. I love it when paper can be the main focus of a card. TYFS with us and having fun with us at Christmas Card Challenge #37. :)
